Letter from the President
To Our Alumni and Friends: “The more things change, the more they stay the same,” is a quote attributed to a 19th-century French novelist. Although debates rage among scholars about the inherent wisdom, it resonates with those of us at MCPHS University. While we are continuously changing, we stay committed to a mission grounded in a nearly 200-year-old legacy of excellence in healthcare education. Recently we welcomed the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), the oldest school of acupuncture in the United States, to the MCPHS University community. NESA, founded in 1975, offers master of acupuncture and master of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degrees. This affiliation adds breadth to our well-established programs, will spark the development of new inter-professional majors, and strengthens existing collaborations with universities in China and Japan. As you read more, I am confident that you will appreciate the current benefits and understand the future promise of our shared destiny. We also innovate for the benefit of our alumni community. Continuing education programs respond to evolving informational and licensure needs. Our Center for Professional Career Development offers career counseling services for students and alumni. Our Alumni Services department is organizing four regional chapters based in northern California, Texas, Florida, and New York/Connecticut/New Jersey. These chapters will extend social, recreational, informational, and educational services to alumni who reside and/or work in these regions. Every graduate experiences only a short time as a student; every graduate is an alumnus for life. MCPHS always has been, and always will be, committed to our students and to our alumni. Our commitments never change, they just stay the same. Sincerely,
Charles F. Monahan Jr. President FALL BUL L E TIN 2015
